On July 17, 2008, Disney announced that the Sleeping Beauty Castle walkthrough would reopen in the style of the original Earle dioramas, enhanced with new technology not available in 1957. The walkthrough reopened on November 27, 2008 at 5:00 p. Hub at the center of the park. The castle walkthrough entrance is on the west side of the building inside Fantasyland. Guests first see a large medieval-themed story book open to a page that announces the birth of the princess Aurora. After climbing the stairs inside, a scene depicts Aurora as a baby, being blessed with magic gifts by her fairy godmothers.
The Disney family coat of arms hangs above the archway to the castle. It is composed of three lions passant in pale. At the rear of the castle, shaded by the archways and driven into the ground is a gold spike that is widely, but wrongly, believed to mark the geographical center of Disneyland as of the addition of Mickey’s Toontown in 1993. In reality, the spike is a surveyor’s mark that was used to ensure that the castle bridge and entrance lined up with Main Street USA when the park was first constructed. In celebration of Disneyland’s 50th anniversary, both Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella Castle received makeovers. The creation of Disneyland is represented by a pair of famous „Ears“ peeking up over the horizon to see the wonders to come.
A World on the Move“, otherwise known as the „New Tomorrowland“ of 1967, is represented by rocket ships and accented by opalescent planets. The Blue Fairy represents the debut of the Main Street Electrical Parade. The Indiana Jones Adventure is represented by the evil Eye of Mara, guarded by snakes. The 50th Anniversary of Disneyland is represented by fireworks and Tinker Bell. The gold railings were also added into the second floor of the castle in order to differentiate itself from similar then-current Hong Kong Disneyland’s castle which opened in the same year. Gold railing are still intact in almost 10 years.
